Liverpool vs Newcastle: Brilliant Dejan Lovren volley provokes ‘It’s our year’ reaction from fans

Lovren’s goal came after just eleven minutes into the Reds’ home fixture, which is the 19th game of the season and marks the halfway stage in the title race.

Now that Dejan Lovren has started scoring stunners as well, the fans seemingly cannot contain themselves. You can read a round-up of the reaction below.
